# Applications of Derivatives Poster Task Your Unit

MCV4U: Unit #1-2 Applications of Derivatives Poster Task Your Unit #1-2 Project is to research one specific real-life application of Derivatives! You must create your assignment as a poster (online/paper-take a picture) and this must be one page (or one slide if you use a slideshow program). Research something complex and interesting! Be creative in your poster! Some useful programs: PowerPoint, Google Slides, Paper – take a picture, Canva.com YOUR EXPECTATIONS: 1. Explain the application by providing some background information and what it is without the math. 2. Describe how/why it is useful to use derivatives for this application 3. Create your OWN word problem regarding this application and provide 4. COMPLETE solutions.
